    Hi All,
    Just joined the forums.
    Have been enjoying all the questions and answers here, I now have a question of my own and hope you can help.
    I want to get my wife an Iphone4 from big red, she is a principal of a middle school and a calendar is a must. She is currently using my old BB Bold, but is not staying charged and has dropped a few calls.
    My question is this: will Outlook sync with the iPhone, they are running Windows 7. I will be going out to see if iTunes is able to be downloaded at her office this weekend.
    If this is not possible, are there any ideas as far getting her daily school calendar on the iPhone?
    Thank you in advance for any help.

    Outlook does sync with the iPhone/iPad/iPod touch.

    Although even better would be if the school uses Exchange - then the phone can synchronize directly to the Exchange server (instead of relying on synchronizing through the computer).

    Wow thnx for the quick replies.
    It does depend on iTunes being able to be downloaded correct.
    Will she be able to use the iPhone here at home with our iMac as well or no.
    The reason I ask is I use my iPhone strictly with our iMac.
    Thanks again

    You can only synchronize your iPhone with one computer.

    If her school offers over the air exchange server synchronization with the iPhone, then it could by synchronized with your home mac but still connect to the calendar.

    Scottyk9,
    She would not be getting school e- mails, they won't allow that. She would just be getting her pop3 e- mails. Would just need to sync with Outlook.
    Hope I didn't miss anything about your post. Not very Windows oriented.

    This. Best possible route. Hopefully the school has an exchange server. If not, it likely won't work.

    I would wait for the updated iPhone 4 or iPhone 5 both to be released in a month
